Twin Viking Cruises riverboats 'tethered' at the dock in Budapest, our ship
is the Aegir. Last night we sailed, leaving after dinner (food has been fabulous so far)
around 8:30 PM. The captain took the ship down river, turned and sailed under the
bridges and past the beautiful palace, parliament, churches, all of Budapest's
brilliantly illuminated buildings, along either side of the Danube.
It was an evening to remember.
Hungarian Parliament - Budapest
This morning we awoke to sunny skies, and are now passing small villages
along the Danube as we head to Bratislava, Slovakia. Men are fishing along
the riverbanks - children waving, dogs barking - I think a lovely day is in store for
183 excited passengers, including us. By the way, our number increased to 13
with the addition of our younger friends from England, newlyweds, Emma and John.
We are a merry group!
